Supporting Our Mission
Throughout the year, The Link hosts several events to support The Link’s mission through serving our neighbors or raising needed funds.
Just the Basics
Household & Hygiene Distribution Event
The Link partners with churches, service groups, businesses and volunteers to gather and distribute basic household and hygiene items. In a single morning, $10,000 of goods are distributed with about 100 volunteers engaged in the effort.

Smokin’ for The Link
The “Rib Fest” (as it has become affectionately known) is The Link’s premier summer fundraising
event. This event makes it possible to help stabilize children, families and seniors in need.
For the sixth year, a dozen teams will make their way to Goat Ridge Brewing Co. to smoke and grill over 4,000 lbs. of ribs. And pies. So. Many. Delicious. Pies. And brownies the chocolate lovers.
Making their first team debut, Jennie-O is graciously cooking up premier turkey products designed especially for the grill season—every ticket includes a turkey sample this year!
Other new additions to Rib Fest include:
- Two music stages
- Bean bag tournament
- Bouncy Houses
Because of the efforts of more than 100 volunteers who make this event possible, from organizing the event to baking pies and smoking ribs, over $20,000 was raised to help people in need.
A big thank you to the generosity and support of about 1,000 people supporting this event, making it the premier culinary + music event of the summer (in our not-so-humble opinion).
